Three men are stranded during a storm when their car gets stuck in the mud along a country road. They take refuge in a nearby mansion. It is the anniversary of a death at the mansion, and there is the palpable presence of his ghost. While arguing about the death the lights go out, and when they come back on the widow of the dead man has disappeared.
Stars: John Miljan, June Collyer, Richard Carle, Henry Kolker, Johnny Arthur, Spencer Charters, Donald Kirke, and Eve Southern
The old mansion was once home to a mad doctor. It is filled with secret passages. And there is an escaped insane asylum inmate who wants to perform plastic surgeries on some of the guests.
And there is a play being enacted until they find a body that was not in the play.
Very entertaining and not really so terrifying.
The ending will leave you smiling.

"There's something queer about you two"
Tiresome dark house goofiness, interesting only for Johnny Arthur's pre-code mincing homosexual character. Starts well but is all cliche silliness before long. If dark house stuff is your thing, you will like, I reckon.

A Better HH Movie
My favorite haunted house movie is "House on Haunted Hill" with Vincent Price, but "The Ghost Walks" would rank second.

Starts out well enough.....
It really did start out well, different than any movie that I had seen like it to date. The concept was really great too.
The only problem I had with the movie was the part played by actor Johnny Arthur. Everything about this guy grated my last nerve. I need to see another movie with him in it so I can find out if I don't like him as an actor or just the character he is playing in the movie (Mr. Wood's Secretary).

One of my favorites. A dark and stormy night, drafty mansion, secret passageways, female screams, a psycho on the loose, and 1930s humor - this movie is timeless. I'd hope for a remake but Hollywood couldn't do it justice. Thanks for the upload!

THANK YOU TO THE UPLOADER!!!!!
This type mystery is the BEST! The dark old mansion, a lot of secrets. Maybe, if I am a good girl, a ghost or three, plus a few skeletons.

i haven't seen a film with peep holes in the eyes of a huge portrait yet that isn't somewhat goofy, and this one certainly fits that bill. a mansion with halls wider than my office it is something to behold and it only lasts an hour..
be warned. it won't improve your mood much, but at least it doesn't detract if you don't expect anything.
